If you’re interested in Roman history, this tour is certainly for you. You’ll visit Matera, where you’ll visit one of the Sassi Houses—prehistoric cave dwellings built into the rock—thought to be some of the first human settlements in Italy. You’ll also visit Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, known for its blue skies and rich heritage. Visit the ancient Greek Amphitheater in Taormina, built in the 3rd century BC; the ancient Greek structures that have survived for 2,400 years in Agrigento; and the 12th-century Norman Cathedral in Monreale, famous for its 50,000 square feet of precious byzantine mosaics. Photos and words cannot adequately capture these sights.
History buffs will also enjoy Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Imagine what life was like 2,000 years ago! This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into life at the peak of the Roman Empire. Of course, you’ll also visit some of the ancient structures in Rome, such as the Colosseum and Roman Forum. In Naples, you’ll visit Reggia di Capodimonte, a grand Bourbon palace that houses the National Museum of Capodimonte. This is just another out-of-the-ordinary experience included by Globus.
